Programs of study

The college is composed of the following five academic departments.

Master’s degrees can be completed with options for doing research or through courses only.  


Research interests pursued in the Department of Biomedical Engineering include the following areas: micro and nanotechnology innovations in medicine, drug delivery systems for cancer therapy, biomimetic microenvironments, tissue engineering and 3D printing; smart biomaterials for biomedical implants, bone fixation devices, resorbable stents, blood-barrier dysfunction, implants-tissue interface reactions; BioMEMS, BioNEMS, cell-on-chip, nano-electroporation and transfection; biomedical instrumentation, remote health monitoring, epilepsy seizure detection, exoskeleton for senior citizens.

Research interests in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering include artificial intelligence and machine learning, data analytics and databases, wired and wireless networks, computer security, cloud security, network security, game programming and natural language processing, computer systems architecture, collaborative learning, parallel and distributed processing, numerical analyses, wireless communication, image understanding and computer vision, sensor fusion, data mining, computational epidemiology, VLSI design, medical imaging, compilers, algorithm analyses, human factors, cryptography, privacy and software vulnerability management, and bioinformatics.

The research areas in the Department of Electrical Engineering include signal processing, wireless communication, channel modeling and measurement, electrical power management and control systems, RF designs, signal processing and radar systems, VLSI design and testing, analog and mixed-signal IC design, nano-scale semiconductor device modeling and design, wireless sensor network design, radio-frequency identification (RFID) systems, sensor and sensor interface design, coding theory, bioinformatics, artificial intelligence, pattern recognition, multisensor fusion, and acoustic sensor systems.

Research programs in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering are focused in the various areas of advanced functional and structural materials, including high strength and high temperature metal alloys, solid and liquid crystal polymers, semiconductor, dielectric and opto-electronic materials and devices, high temperature and environmentally stable ceramics and glass, nanomaterials and nanotechnology processing, alloys and ceramic material processing and additive manufacturing, tribological materials and surface engineering, computational material designs and multi-scale materials characterization. The graduate programs emphasize student-centered hands-on multi-disciplinary research with modern world-class equipment and facilities housed in the department.

Research areas within the Department of Mechanical Engineering include novel sensor systems for extreme environments, energy conversion systems for renewable energy applications, energy conservation technology for built environment, zero-energy buildings, environmental monitoring and modeling to study urban and regional-scale air quality, biomedical heat transfer, environmentally friendly electronic systems, stress analysis in thin films, fracture and failure of solid materials, nanomaterials, micro- and nano-scale machining, fabrication and characterization, small target visibility, noise cancellation, logic circuit design, applications of technology to education, biomedical optics, telemedicine, mechanical behavior of materials for structures and micromechanical systems, control systems, field emissions and corrosion engineering.
